Logistics Services

 A sure way to lose customers is to screw up on the shipping. We measure our performance with key performance indicators. Our performance is top-notch, but occasionally there is a bad order. For every bad order, we conduct a root cause analysis and change the process if necessary. We will also cover the cost of expediting the shipment if necessary. Terraboost has a full-service transportation division, so we can ship your product anywhere in the world and any mode.

For every complex function, we develop process flows, so our team knows exactly what to do.

What is Cross Docking?

Cross-docking is the practice in logistics when cargo from an incoming vehicle is directly loaded into an outbound mode of transportation.

Typically, cross-docking takes place in a warehouse/distribution center/terminal that has docks for shipping and receiving. Cross-docking refers to the process of receiving goods through an inbound dock and then transferring them across the warehouse to the outbound transportation dock.

There are different types of cross-docking depending on whether the client is a distributor, manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer. The most common process would be as follows: the warehouse receives goods from multiple suppliers, repackages those goods, loading the goods onto another truck for shipment to the customer.

Advantages of Cross Docking

Companies use Terraboost Logistics for cross-docking to gain the following benefits:

  • Reduced inventory, which results in reduced inventory holding costs

  • Less inventory handling lowers costs and minimizes the opportunity for damage

  • Minimizes or eliminates the need for warehouse space, which saves money

  • Reduced lead time from order to the customer.

  • Streamlines the supply chain and reduces receiving, order processing, and kitting at the destination

  • Lowers transportation costs and labor costs

Cross-docking operation is hard to beat because of the following reasons:

Location. Our cross-docking facility is located in Bolingbrook Illinois and is a prized location for distribution centers, terminals, and cross-docking facilities because of the proximity to important rail, ports, airports, expressways, and major US cities.

Cross Docking expertise. We know how to manage your cross-docking operation efficiently and effectively. We carefully design the layout and develop processes for unloading, screening, documenting, sorting, and reloading.

Transportation capability. We have a full-service transportation group that does thousands of shipments per month. We have an experienced team ready to go the extra mile. Our relationship with all national and regional logistics companies gives us access to their enormous network of carriers along with volume discounts that very few companies can get.
